Product Description

Experience one of the most popular movie series of all time like never before with the Back to the Future 25th Anniversary Trilogy! Join Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) and a time traveling DeLorean for the adventure of a lifetime as they travel to the past, present and future, setting off a time-shattering chain reaction that disrupts the space time continuum! From filmmakers Steven Spielberg, Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, these timeless films feature all-new 25th Anniversary restorations for enhanced picture and sound plus hours of exciting bonus features.

Additional Features

The bonus material included in the Back to the Future 25th-anniversary box is generous and varied, offering items that are exclusive to Blu-ray by way of Universal's interactive "U-Control" pop-up features, which viewers can access at any point while watching the trilogy. These features include "Setups & Payoffs," which explain the connections between various scenes throughout the three films (for example, in the opening credits of the first installment, the camera pans over a room filled with clocks, one of which has a miniature man dangling from its hands--a tableau revisited later); a trivia track; access to storyboards to watch while the finished scene is onscreen; and a bookmarking option. All make good use of at least some of the Blu-ray format's vast potential.

Elsewhere, the main attraction is likely to be Tales from the Future, a newly made, nearly three-hour documentary in six parts (three on the first disc, one on the second, and two on the third). Most of the principals from both behind the camera (director Robert Zemeckis, producer Bob Gale, exec producer Stephen Spielberg, etc.) and in front of it (actors Michael J. Fox--Parkinson's disease notwithstanding--Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, and others) are on hand to discuss the Back to the Future odyssey. There are some fascinating revelations throughout--not least the facts that Eric Stoltz, not Fox, was first cast in the Marty McFly role, only to be replaced after five weeks of filming (a few of Stoltz's scenes are shown here), and that the filmmakers rejected Crispin Glover's excessive demands for Back to the Future II, which led to his role as McFly's father being written out of the story. Other extras include "archival" making-of featurettes, which offer some of the same material as the newer documentary (and delivered by many of the same folks, only considerably younger), while a featurette on the second disc in which theoretical physicist Michio Kaku discusses the physics of time travel in the films is also quite entertaining.

Each disc also includes deleted scenes, audio commentary tracks with Gale and coproducer Neil Canton, a Q&A commentary track with Zemeckis and Gale, and a host of "behind-the-scenes" material explicating everything from makeup tests, outtakes, and storyboards to effects shots and the creation of the DeLorean "time machine." And that's not all: in addition to common ingredients like photo galleries and theatrical trailers, viewers wanting to go back to the past can dial up music videos by Huey Lewis and the News and ZZ Top from the first and third films, respectively. --Sam Graham

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This 2005 release, "Lowest Price Ever" on the front package contains the corrected Widescreen versions of Part II and Part III. The original release in 2002 with an oval sticker on the package contains the defective versions of Part II and Part III.

The framing was so bad on Part II and III, you actually missed visual jokes! In Part II when Marty sizes the jacket in the future, the framing cut off Marty's hand when he presses the button to size the jacket. In Part III, when Marty and Doc are in the Drive-In to leave for 1885, Doc makes the joke about Marty's tennis shoes because the boots don't fit, but the framing cut off Marty's feet. When Doc tries alcohol in the Delorean and blows the fuel injection manifold, the majority of the explosion is cut out of the frame.

Part II DVD will have the marking, "V2" on the outer edge next to the copyright. Part III DVD does not have any new markings, but the Widescreen framing has been corrected in this 2005 re-release.

I won't review or ramble on about the movies, it has been almost 30 years since BTTF 1, and most know what these three movies are about.

I will rave, however, about the quality of the Blu Ray transfer of the movie - in Blu Ray, it is crystal clear - I was floored by how crisp, clear and gorgeous the Blu Ray transfer was. I viewed it on a 65" Panasonic VT60 Plasma, and it was beautiful. Not all Blu Ray transfers of older movies fare as well. What is also nice is the movie is 1:85:1 Anamorphic Widescreen which means you get to view it full screen - no "watchband" like 2:35:1 here... that is always nice.

What is a bonus is that after almost 30 years, I STILL enjoy these movies. And more importantly, so do my 13 year old boys - which says a lot about how well done these were - it is very entertaining. I saw the original first movie in the theaters when it first came out, and I am still entertained from beginning to end.

So here we have a timeless set of movies which is still entertaining today, and one where the Blu Ray transfer allows you to watch it in crystal clear HD. Awesome.

5 stars all the way!!!

Thanks for reading.

Don't listen to any of these reviews prior to Oct 20th. The item hasn't been released yet. How can there be a 1 star review for something that doesn't exist yet?? Amazon needs to do something about these loons. Ignore my 5 star rating as well.. (even though we all know it's going to be awesome)

Format: DVD
Great Scott! Step aside Yoda. Move over Captain Kirk. The greatest sci-fi saga is finally available on DVD. The trilogy is long overdue in the new format, but definitely worth the wait. A bonus to the long hiatus will be the extras that have become standard on all new releases.
The plot for the trilogy seems complicated at face value as teenage Marty (Fox) and his unlikely best friend Doc Brown (Lloyd) travel back and forth through time altering the past, present, or future at every pitstop. However, when you watch the films, the story is not complicated at all. The script is tightly woven, the characters are memorable, and the chemistry between the major players (Fox, Lloyd, Thompson, Steenburgen, Glover, and Wilson) is unrivaled.
The simple moral of the story is "Life is what you make of it."
Going against the grain, I have to admit that the second feature was my favorite of the three. This is primarily due to portions where Marty battles his way through scenes in the first film without being seen by his other self or his parents.....similar camera tricks were seen a few years later in Zemekis's other great film "Forrest Gump". I was also amazed at the gratuitous and shameless product placement in the second film, which even made "Seinfeld" seem subtle.
One thing I've got my fingers crossed for on the extras would be the scenes with the original Marty as played by Erick Stoltz. Allegedly, three weeks of filming occurred before he was switched out with Micheal J. Fox.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Just wanted to let people know that in the widescreen edition, a mistake was made on the second and third discs--instead of using actual widescreen footage, someone just put black bars on the top and bottom of the fullscreen pan-and-scan version, so you get even *less* picture with the widescreen version. This error was not noticed until it was too late, although Universal Studios is planning to correct this in a future version of the dvd set, and people who bought the original set will be able to get a free trade-in. Here's the email they've been sending to people who asked about this:
"Thank you for your email. Universal Studios will exchange Back to the Future parts 2 and 3 for copies with the updated framing in late February 2003. You may send the DVDs back now or wait until February. Please send Back to the Future disks 2 and 3, without the case, and a letter with the following information: Name, Full Mailing Address, Daytime Phone Number, Reason for Return and Return Address. Send to:

Thank you,

Format: DVD
Well, after too much Internet gossip and anticipation, we can finally enjoy the DVD version of this great trilogy. Actually, nothing needs to be said about the story or the fantastic crew that made it happen, everybody knows it (and if not, you're a caveman amongst other cavemen...or cave-women...). The DVDs have many extras you'll enjoy and then some...
Probably the most-talked about issue of this release is the product's interpretation of the soft matted original cut. If you dig deep enough in Internet sources, you'll read a mixture of positive and negative responses. Fact is, on this 1.85:1 version, you will see less picture information in height, and more in width than the 4:3 version. This movie was shot in soft-matted format, which basically means that the original prints were in a kind of '4:3' format, where in the upper and lower regions there is information that needs to be covered (the microfone syndrome...), and was not intended to be part of the screening of the film. This is done in theaters, and again with every video/ld/dvd release. This in contrast to 2.35:1 movies, or otherwise matted films and formats, in which case the widescreen format is 'directly' converted to DVD, and will give a much more complete film than the 4:3 viewing. But that's not the case here.
What all this means is that with the Back To The Future DVDs, a new matting has been applied that has converted the original soft-matted material to a new 1.85:1 format. This means that, like I stated earlier, when you compare the 4:3 VHS (that everybody knows) to this release, the 4:3 has some extra film top and bottom, and this DVD has some extra film left and right. This is what the 'confusion' on the Internet is all about.

I cannot express how disappointed I am with Universal for selling such poorly designed packaging.
